    The school year got off to a bumpy start for some teachers in D.C. after their first paychecks were either late or too small.

    The school system is blaming timekeeping errors for the problem that affected 349, or one-tenth, of the system's teachers, The Washington Post reported.

    Teachers were supposed to get their first checks on Friday, but spokeswoman Melissa Salmanowitz says the payroll time was either entered incorrectly or not entered at all by employees responsible for reporting that information.

    Salmanowitz says supplemental checks for the balance owed to teachers were made available starting Saturday afternoon. Checks not picked up by Sunday afternoon would be delivered to teachers at school Monday.
